Let’s determine if your CD-ROM drive or your Operating System Software ( ie...Windows XP) is the problem.
You will need a bootable CD, you can use your “Dell Resource” CD or any other bootable CD disk.
Power on the laptop and tap the F12 key to get to the “Boot Selection Menu”. Insert the DELL “Resource CD” into the CD-ROM drive. Select “Boot from CD/DVD drive” from the selection menu.
If the laptop boots from the CD drive then you Operating System Software is the problem.

If the laptop won’t boot from CD then your CD-ROM is defective and needs to be replaced.

My cd rom will not load 18 wheels of steel big city rigs how can i get it to load when I put it in the cd rom it dose nothin


The game may not be a cd that is setup to auto-load.

Put the cd in, give about a minute and then go into My computer and where your cd-rom is in there it should show the cd loaded as it will have a name there of the cd. If it doesn't show something then the cd might be bad.

If it does show something then right click on the drive and choose open and then it will show you all the files on the cd, then choose setup to install the game.

Now back to the cd, if it doesn't show anything in my computer then try other cd's to make sure your cd-rom is still working cause if its not reading anything then your drive is bad and would need to be replaced.

Cannot get CD-ROM to work,to come up on screen.


Ok with that you need to insert the disc and then go into the my computer section of your computer and then in the CD rom drive you should see the disc and you will click on it to start the process. However if that does not work then your CD rom drive is defective and you need to purchase a new one.

Have an acer aspire 7720 gemstone and the cd drive will just not work on it


Sounds like the drivers were removed at some point. Ok,
http://www.cdrom-drivers.com/
Follow that link, Match it to what you have for a CD Rom drive. They have everything, even the old stuff i still use on my other computers. *If this does not work. Then check the cables of the cd rom drive and make sure the serial cable is in. this is a thin long strip cable that goes from your motherboard to your cd rom. BUT before you even touch anything, make sure to touch something made of real metal to remove all static electricity that is on your body, ive goofed plenty of times working on a system by not doing that and toasted a few drives that way.

Now if all else fails, and i am saying it would have to mean that the drive is dead. You will need to buy a new drive. But ITS Very hard to remove the drivers for a CD Rom drive because of the fact that they are in BIOS of the CPU. So unless you were in there doing something, the cd rom drive should work. But CD Rom drives have a work like of 2 years at max usually, its rare to find drives that last longer than that unless they were barely used. Hence why i still have some really old drives for my server system.

HP PC will not boot up


the first thing that i would do is see if you can go into safe mode and try booting from there . when it comes up choose the one that is already hilighted. if it still wont boot then open up the tower and unplug the power from the cd rom. if it is your cd rom i would go and by another one or return the cd rom.

hope this works

LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B driver


go http://www.cdrom-drivers.com/drivers/77/77204.htm (thats driverguide: name temp; pass 512)
but that CD reader does not need drivers if you use windows98 Me 2000 XP 2003 or Vista... if its not working and your computer is ok you surely have connected something the wrong way.
